How to Overcome Your Wallflower Ways


You might not know it from these emails…

…but I’m a shy guy. 🙈

Shyer than a mouse at a cat convention.

When attending in-person events, I have to summon deep reserves of energy and focus to overcome my wallflower ways.

I thought Zoom might fix this. But I quickly discovered five words that make me shudder:

“Go to a breakout room.” 😬

I do it. But it ain’t easy.

That’s why I’m loving the book “How to Work a Room” by Susan Roane.

First, Susan makes it clear that I’m not alone. More than 90% of American adults identify as “shy.”

That, alone, makes me feel better.

But that’s not the point of the book. The book is all about how to overcome your wallflower ways to establish meaningful, business-building connections — in person or online.

Ted Prodromou and I chose “How to Work a Room” as this month’s selection for the Mastermind Book Club.

Every month, Ted and I choose a great book. We read it. And then we host a meeting on Zoom where Club members gather to discuss the book.

Some have read the book. Some haven’t. Even if you haven’t read the book, you’ll benefit from the conversation.

This month’s meeting is next week — Thursday, Feb. 22 at 2:30 p.m. ET. and…

Susan Roane will join us for the discussion!

The Club is free to join. Members received meeting reminders with the Zoom link.
